Beatle Brunch Bytes

Carl Perkins talks to Joe Johnson in 1996 about his new CD “Go Cat Go” that features contributions from all four Beatles.

It was 1996 and Beatle Brunch Host Joe Johnson had the good fortune to interview the great Carl Perkins about his new cd, “Go Cat Go”.  As far as we know, it’s the ONLY CD or album NOT by The Beatles that features each member. John is featured with his live version of “Blue Suede Shoes” written by Carl. Ringo is featured singing and playing “Honey Don’t” live with Carl Perkins, and Paul and George are each featured co-singing and playing with Carl on a song he wrote for each of them, plus others like Tom Petty. 

Carl Perkins is an American treasure and what a treat it was to have him be SO kind to Joe Johnson and others. We sure do miss him.
